Bankô / Cardboard stool

Same old picture: on a music show, a parade or in a long queue your legs get too tired and you have nowhere to sit and relax. It is for these unpleasant but usual situations that Bankô was created. It is a portable stool made only with water-based glue and cardboard – a light, low cost and recyclable material –, that is environment-friendly in both production and disposal. Bankô can be easily carried since it has handles and folds on its sides that allow to transform it into a very thin plate. It is a product that meets the frequent lack of seats in outdoor areas and is in tune with sustainable design. Dimensions(max): 28 X28X42cm
